A Bay Shore man was arrested for allegedly driving drunk after he crashed his motorcycle, killing his 26-year-old wife, who was a passenger, over Columbus Day weekend, Suffolk County police said.
Michael R. Proctor, 26, was riding a Kawasaki motorcycle eastbound on Sunrise Highway in West Islip when he lost control of the motorcycle at Exit 41 at 12:30 a.m. Sunday, police said.
His wife, Megan, was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Hospital in West Islip, where she was pronounced dead.
Michael Proctor was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at the same hospital before he was charged with driving while intoxicated. He is scheduled to be arraigned at a later date.
Vehicular Crime Unit detectives impounded the motorcycle, are continuing the investigation and ask anyone with information about the crash to call them at 631-852-6555.
